GCH to train new hospice volunteers March 17 and 21

March 5, 2014


Do you need something meaningful to do over spring break?  Do you want to really help someone at the end of his or her life?


New hospice volunteers are being trained for companion and personal care, light housekeeping, meal preparation, sewing, office work and other tasks according to the volunteer’s abilities and availability, according to Linda Rigsby, volunteer coordinator for Hospice at Geary Community Hospital.  This is the only accredited hospice agency in Geary County.


Rigsby will train a new group of hospice volunteers March 17 and 21.


Sign-up through Rigsby and plan to attend the two required training sessions on Monday, March 17 (Better wear your green!), from 9:00 am-3:00 pm., in the Medical Arts II Conference Room, and Friday, March 21, from 9:00 am-3:00 pm, in the Conference Room of the Martha K. Hoover Women’s Health Center.  Both locations are located on the south side of Geary Community Hospital in Junction City.
